Dynamic Multi- level enhanced search with eTailThis

Enhanced search functions for eCommerce convenience


The vast majority of online shoppers will browse through your sales catalogue using a product search so it’s vital that your on-site search is as effective as possible to drive increased sales and customer acquisition. The eTailThis eCommerce solution gives you a high quality enhanced search platform that gives your customers the convenience that leads to increased sales.

eTailThis multi-level dynamic search delivers faster search results, a decrease in server load and consequently much more trustworthy results. Customers need an accurate and detailed search function to make purchase decisions, and that’s just one of the features that our eCommerce platform offers.

Our eCommerce System uses Sphinx, a fully integrated external search engine running on our Magento-based platform so your customers can easily find what they’re looking for and move quickly to the checkout.

With eTailThis you can configure the search and index components in the most appropriate way for your eCommerce store including wildcard search, morphology processing, matching misspellings and all the filtering and layering any customer could need.

Key enhanced search features


Sphinx Search Engine

The eTailThis eCommerce search engine was built on the Sphinx system, a popular and powerful search engine used by many major sites. Sphinx can handle any volume of searches, with some sites seeing hundreds of millions of searches every day. Sphink gives your visitors the convenience they need to decide on a purchase from your site.

Enhanced search behaviours help any online merchant convert potential customers to sales, and with eTailThis you’ll get the very best search system on the market. The eTailThis multi-level dynamic search delivers everything you need from your site search.

Our enhanced search uses Sphinx, an open source full text search server.

Using a Sphinx search engine can increase the conversion of visitors who are looking for something to customers by more than 50% by making sure that they find exactly what they’re looking for.

But what exactly does Sphinx search do as part of the eTailThis eCommerce Platform?

Customer-Friendly Searches from eTailThis

Enhanced search with eTailThis brings you a lot of features designed to improve your customer acquisition and increase return on investment (ROI).

Our eCommerce search stands above the competition, and finds the products that visitors are actually looking for. Many times your customers won’t know the exact spelling of a particular product, so the eTailThis system corrects all misspelled words according to your customised morphology dictionary or allows your visitors find the required product by part of the word. An incorrect spelling shouldn’t lead to a missed sale. eTailThis also includes stop word removal and hitless indexing as well as synonym processing, exceptions and blended characters.

With our eCommerce multi-level dynamic search you can also define whether the search results will match all query words, any of the query words or a phrase which matches precisely. To make sure you provide for international customers eTailThis provides full support for all global languages. We want to ensure your customers will always hit on the right product in your online store no matter what their native language is.

In addition eTailThis has much better relevance search rankings than our competitors, as our enhanced search package supports keyword frequencies, keyword proximity and ranks closer phrase matches higher with perfect matches ranked on top.

The search rankings you use for your online store are flexible so you can change them to suit your different eCommerce outlets. On the eTailThis eCommerce Platform you can also search by category names, tags or by associated SKUs.

Some customers use the search facility on your eCommerce site as a first step in their shopping quest, perhaps starting with a generic term like ‘tablets’ before evolving to ‘Android tablets’ and so on. It’s impossible of course to anticipate every conceivable search chain but you can offer search result filters and layers so your customer can refine their searches without having to start over.

Enhanced search with eTailThis means giving your customers options to refine so they are more likely to find the product they want to buy from your website. Our mission to improve your eCommerce customer acquisition also includes the provision of a quick view option in the search results which has been shown to boost sales significantly.

Finally with the eTailThis eCommerce platform we provide high searching speeds of over 500 queries/sec against 1,000,000 SKUs so your customers don’t have to wait to see all your online store has to offer.
